The largest H&M store in the world is scheduled to open Saturday on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Swedish clothing retailer will open its doors in the recently closed FAO Schwarz location at the Forum Shops at Caesars. The three-level, 55,000-square-foot store will house women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, shoes and accessories.

The FAO Schwarz location closed Jan. 23 after the store let its lease expire at the mall at the end of January. The toy store had occupied the space, along with its iconic Trojan horse, since 1997.

The Forum Shops announced in May that H&M would be opening its Las Vegas flagship store in the space.

The store was scheduled to open last month, but the opening was postponed for unknown reasons.

The H&M Forum Shops location was picked to be one of a handful of U.S. stores to carry a limited edition line of clothing from luxury brand Lanvin when it was released last month, scheduled to correspond with the store’s original opening date. While the line quickly sold out in other U.S. stores, the new Forum Shops H&M will be the last location in the world to carry the line when it’s released at a invite-only shopping event Friday night.

Las Vegas is already home to two H&M locations — one at Town Square and one at the Miracle Mile Shops.

  1. Something new for Vegas and more new jobs.

    Vegas is working it's way back, inch by inch.

  2. My wife tells me this is great store, for women anyway. What a wonderful addition on all levels for Las Vegas! However, I do miss FAO Schwarz, but don't we all?
